    With Ribery expected to leave this summer, McGeady could be his replacement. Would be some move.

    Wasn't Joe Kendrick at 1860 Munich a few years ago? Whether he actually played or whether 1860 were actually in the top flight, I'm not sure.
    I think I should the parachute, because I'm great.

    In fact, I think I should get both parachutes, in case one doesn't work.

    Gussie Campbell played for Fortuna somebody or other (cologne?) circa 1970's in the then German second division.

    I think he was at Cologne between 1971 and 1979 but mainly in their Regional League and Second Division. Ont one season in the Bundesliga.

    tatally agree with that post the cultural difference is a minor hurdle.
    you see south american players coming to europe to play in the likes of russia and ukraine and to most european leagues, the same can be said for african players that come to europe

    It is in reality, but in the minds of Irish kids it seems like going to another planet. At least going to UK doesn't mean that they'd have to learn another language (well maybe in parts of Scotland it would sound that way!).
    Plus, heading to the UK (especially to the English Premiership) is the Holy Grail to most Irish kids that play soccer.

    you'd wonder if increased coverage of foreign leagues would make them more attractive to irish youngsters? On most nights here you can watch games in England from every division, whereas you can only see Bundesliga games on Setanta Sports 2, and maybe 3 Primera Liga games a week on Sky Sports?

    I wouldn't say increased coverage on it's own would make a difference, but I certainly think that a high profile Irish player playing in a league other than one in the UK would make it more attractive. It would a certain amount of coverage too.

    but i think if french scouts came to watch irish players at underrage levels and asked them to join their club, they would. but the only clubs that scout here seems to be english. i think if we kept players here longer, then their horizons would broaden but when you're 15 its difficult to reject chelsea.

    havent a few loi players played in norway and perhaps sweden? im sure zayed played in norway for a while.

    for the record, theres nothing wrong with going to england, its one of the strongest european leagues, but just from a fans perspective i'd like to see more diversity.

    Unlike Celtic who failed at the first round in the last 3 seas....oh, hang on, they qualified out of the group in 2007 and 2008 (when Bayern were in the UEFA to boot)....

    Would be a good move for him for me, far superior league to the SPL.

    I pray he is available for both games as he now remain our single attacking weapon. A lot of weight now thrust upon young shoulders. I have no doubt that if fit he will prove the naysayers lurking within the confines of this forum, so called fans??? WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes that's correct. Zayed was on loan with a Norwegian club for half a season. Another Norwegian club was interested in Stephen Ward before he moved to Wolves. And a Swedish club were strongly linked with Jason Byrne 4 or so years back.

    World Cup qualifiers: Aiden McGeady and Shay Given sat out training this morning after the 1-1 draw with Bulgaria at Croke Park, but while the latter was merely rested there is serious doubt over the availability of the Celtic player for the match against Italy in Bari on Wednesday.


    Giovanni Trapattoni made a late call on including McGeady last night because the winger had been struggling all week with a bruised right foot. His replacement by Andy Keogh in the 90th minute was the only substitution of the night and came after a heavy challenge left him hobbling.

    McGeady left Croke Park icing a knee injury and when questioned on his fitness this morning Trapattoni did not rule him out of the meeting with the world champions but pointedly extolled the virtues of Wolves striker Keogh and Reading's Shane Long. on the right wing.

    “Shay Given will be fit I’m sure, but at the moment my only change is likely to be McGeady,” said the manager.

    "He had a bit of a knock to the knee and I don’t know,” he continued. “I hope he will be fit but if not then, as I said before, we have Andy Keogh who is in good form and we also have Shane Long."


    McGeady’s absence, coupled with that of Damien Duff, would seriously blunt Ireland’s attacking options in Bari, though, as is always the case with Trapattoni, avoiding defeat is the priority against Marcello Lippi’s side.

    The Italian was adamant last night there was nothing Kevin Kilbane could have done about his own goal that cost his side two vital points at Croke Park.

    Ireland were leading 1-0 and had a top-two finish in Group Eight within their grasp when Kilbane, winning his 94th senior cap, unwittingly diverted Stiliyan Petrov’s driven cross into his own net.

    The 74th-minute goal proved enough to secure a fourth successive draw for Stanimir Stoilov’s side, who nevertheless remain seven points adrift of the Republic.

    “I don’t blame Kilbane for what happened. It was an accident,” Trapattoni said. “He did not have time to react. He was trying to stop the ball, but there was not much that he could do.”

    Captain Robbie Keane and Kevin Doyle both missed good chances in a frantic conclusion, and Trapattoni later admitted a lack of calmness in front of goal had cost his side.

    “With a little bit of calm in front of the goalkeeper, we could have scored a goal,” he said. “Doyle had a header in the last minute - okay, he was tired - and Robbie, we had two players in the middle and he shot for goal.

    “We were anxious in that situation. We could have scored a goal if we had been calm.

    “We need to stay calm in those situations
